Richmond Park deer: “Rumination”

I have just completed this 7 stage reduction linocut. I spent around 3 weeks working on this. Inspired by a photo by Emma Hughes (@emma_hughes_hdp), though I have given it a whole new colour palette and altered the composition. The slideshow above shows the 7 stages and the gallery below shows various shots during the process. I’m tempted to call this “While Fenton’s away…” (Youtube, 2011). But nah! I think Rumination or The Ruminators. We’ll see. 16 or so have survived the process. On Etsy soon no doubt if I can get a decent photo.
